My self-summary
Hi, I'm Alex. I'm sort of old fashioned, but accepting of those different from myself. I'm a fan of all kinds of traditional music and history. I'm a guy that wants to find a someone to make laugh and dance like an idiot with me.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, school, thinking, reading, trying to make music. Contra and square dancing are fun too.
I’m really good at
Finding lost things. I'm also prone to Cliff Clavin style ramblings about just any subject brought up. If you get that reference you are either older or just cool. Pretty good at making soups, stews, chowders and chilis too.
The first things people usually notice about me
How thick my accent is.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
History, music, my family, and my folkway.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to play mandolin or banjo, maybe a video game, listen to some old records, hanging out at the local watering hole.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been told I have a fairly impressive falsetto singing voice, haha.
You should message me if
If you want to know a silly, smiling guy who wants to meet someone wonderously weird. If you want to dance even if you can't and are looking for an equally goofy partner to join you. Someone to marvel at all of the little wonders and victories in the universe with.
The two of us
